This is one of the pricier options in Panama but I don't think you can go wrong. They offer great Mediterranean options as well as hookah (shisha). The vibe and setting are nice. I visited on a Sunday but have heard it is much busier on Friday and Saturdays. Parking was easy nearby and it is close to major hotels... More

Freshly prepared spicy food and friendly service right across Marriott hotel where we stayed. After a long travel, check in at the hotel, and go to enjoy a nice meal steps away from the hotel.

There was plenty to chose from for our fully vegetarian meal. Would recommend the babaganoush and the fresh pitas. Tasty, fresh and good value. The waiter was also attentive and helpful.

Staff really not interested in helping interpret the menu. We certainly did not feel welcome here at this restaurant. Cold.

Playa Blanca is a gated community with a captive audience and limited restaurants for the volume of prospective clientele. Although service personnel are to be commended; the food served was a basic "Disgrace to Middle Eastern" recipe's. Kibbeh balls were deep fried in over-saturated oil that had not been changed in a great many days. Shawarma was day(s) old local... More

The service,cold beer and Babaganoush were great. Thats where it ended. My meal of Shawarma de Pescado was aweful. Escentially it was deep fried fish fingers in some kind of coating. It was very fishy tasting and quite unpalatable. Probably spent too much time frozen as well as a cheap variety of fish, it was quite disgusting. Served with way... More
